I get asked all the time about carbon fiber and how to make parts. So I did 2 little videos on the topic. These videos only scratch the surface in the world of composites, but give you a little idea. Hope you learn something and I'm sure there will be more questions so ask away.

This one is for basic vacuum bagging:

Carbon fiber technology is an art in itself. My hat goes off to everyone involved in this field! It will surly expand in the future. Investors take note!
Yup. I leave for a composites expo the day after I get back from PRI. The industry as a whole is very young (compared to legacy materials like steel and aluminum) so stuff is changing so fast. There always new stuff coming out.

AJ, where is a place to source the material?, there used to be a large fiberglass supplier down here but they went out of business.

I get all my stuff from several sources. I actually started a website where I blog about composite related topics. The link below has the links to just about all the companies I grab consumable materials from.
